This Sebastian is the real deal — no joke

I don't know how schoolteachers manage to do what they do, and do it as well as they do, given the obstacles tossed in their way by politicians, bureaucrats, special-interest groups, ideologues, social experimenters and assorted other navel-gazers - none of whom could carry their book bag.

Armed with truth, editor ponders strategy

In all the years Iris Long had served as editor of Hometown News, she had never felt faint while covering a story.
